Moraine State Park: South Shore Trails Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This hike could be considered a tour of the South Shore of the 16,725-acre Moraine State Park. Combining three existing loops, the hiker weaves from wooded trails to the shoreline of Lake Arthur and back. The trail starts off by showing some of the variety you will experience throughout the hike, passing under both deciduous and coniferous trees and through a meadow.
You will soon walk back into tree cover and, after crossing a short bridge, through what is essentially a small pine forest. The trail will change from grassy, dirt-mixed mud to a carpet of pine needles as you pass through. The pleasant walk in the conifers doesn’t last long. Shortly begin a slow climb for about a half mile during which you might notice Jacob’s ladder afoot and berry trees beside and above you. After a very brief descent, ascend again but this time for only about 0.2 miles to reach approximately 1,370 feet, the second highest point on this lakeside trail.."
